It was a secret message by an ancient alchemist, found on a crumbling scrap of parchment. And if Saknussemm was right, then every theory about the molten core of the earth is wrong. Prof. Otto Lidenbrock has to learn the truth. So Lidenbrock, his nephew Axel, and the Icelandic hunter Hans climb down the cone of an arctic volcano and into...

A realm of awesome mystery, weird beauty--and deadly peril. Where vast caverns and endless mazes lead to an underground ocean, living fire, and prehistoric monsters. But where any wrong turn, any misstep, can leave the explorers forever trapped in the eternal darkness of a planet-sized tomb...

Buried alive at the heart of the world....

From the Publisher:

In mid-nineteenth century Europe, science fact and science fiction occupied twin thrones of the human imagination in a brave new world on the frontiers of discovery. The particular gift of Jules Verne, author of Around The World in 80 Days and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea as well as Journey to the Center of the Earth, was to ground his fiction in carefully researched science, to endow fantastic adventure with compelling realism.

Often called the father of science fiction, Verne forecast with eerie accuracy many scientific achievements of the twentieth century. Exploration of outer space, submarines, helpicopters, air conditioning, guided missiles and motion pictures all appear in his novels.

A multitalented actor, Shadoe Stevens reads this great journey. He starred in the highly rated comedy series, Dave's World on CBS. In addition to creating, writing and starring in commercials, he also hosted the world's biggest radio show, "American Top 40."

From the Inside Flap:

The BookcassetteŽ format is a special recording technique developed as a means of condensing the full, unabridged audio text of a book to record it on fewer tapes. In order to listen to these tapes, you will need a cassette player with balance control to adjust left/right speaker output. Special adaptors to allow these tapes to be played on any cassette player are available through the publisher or some US retail electronics stores.
